A VOLTAIRE DAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE

Famous French playwright and satirist would have reveled in what happened today in Washington, DC

Oh, I could just see François-Marie Arouet (1694–1778), known by his nom de plume (pen name) Voltaire, French Enlightenment writer, rolling with laughter today, and slapping his knees for joy, were he able to witness in person what happened today at the White House. Because farce does not get better than that. Sometimes real life mimics the arts. Today was one of those days.

So what’s this about?

Well, the French president Emmanuel Macron, and his wife, who is old enough to be his mother, arrived at the White House for their first state visit to the US. And what a farcical comedy it turned out to be.

First, wake a look at this GIF from the White House Terrace with Trump and Macron holding hands like playful grade school pals. Or worse, like a gay couple.

Can’t you just see the conservative American Trump supporters rolling their eyes in disgust at this love-in scene, and mutter: “OMG, did we put a faggot in the White House?”

In actuality, this is when Trump, I suppose, must have told Macron, “let’s go plant your tree.” And then he led him from the terrace to the White House garden.

What tree?

It was an oak sapling which Macron supposedly brought from a historic battlefield in Europe. The sapling comes from a place in the Champagne region, where US marines repelled a German offensive in the final year of World War I.

“Champagne region?” I could just hear Trump rejoice. “Bring it on. Let’s pour the bubbly.”

Instead, they buried it.

Well, sort of. The White House gardeners did most of the work. The two presidents merely shoveled some dirt around the tree as their wives watched and pointed. Like Martha Stewart did when she claimed to have planted trees and flowers in her garden.

Before that, however, this is what happened, according to NBC News…

Trump’s tenderness Tuesday first revealed itself during an arrival ceremony for Macron, when the powerful pair performed a double cheek kiss — a typical European greeting custom. Moments later, during the ceremony, the two smooched again and carried on a long handshake that clocked in around five seconds.

Later Tuesday, during a brief appearance by the two leaders in front of reporters, the American president gently wiped something — Trump said it was dandruff — off Macron’s shoulder.

We need to make him perfect. He is perfect,” Trump said after his delicate dandruff dust-off. Moments earlier, Trump noted the media is “always saying what a great relationship we have.”

Watch how the Trump-Macron ‘bromance’ blossomed at this state visit https://www.nbcnews.com/video/watch-how-the-trump-macron-bromance-has-blossomed-at-this-state-visit-121816582784

As I said, Voltaire would have had a ball today were he able to witness the happenings at the White House.

Candide anyone? 🙂

Voltaire lives on… at the White House

First Lady rebuffs Trump’s public display of affection

Voltaire seems to continue choreographing the Macrons visit to the White House from his grave (the famous French satirist died in 1778). Just as with that pathetic tree planting ceremony yesterday, no spoken words were needed for this farce to tell the story of discord between the president and his wife.

The relationship between Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, on whom he allegedly cheated several times after they were married in 2005 (Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal, for example), was clearly strained. And it was their body language that told the story.

Take a look at how Melania rebuffs her Trump’s effort at hand-holding. At first, she apparently refuses to hold hands as he poked her stiff hand subtly with his little finger, before finally grabbing it.

And then, Melania’s wide-brimmed white hat became an obstacle for Trump when he tried to kiss his wife.  Melania used the hat as a shield against her husband. But her hat was no problem for the French president, who kissed Melania twice on the cheek..

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 9.14.09 AM.pngApparently, Donald is in a doghouse with his beautiful wife. And no wonder, considering the mounting accusations of his infidelity. We’ll have to check in with Voltaire in a few months to see how this farce progresses. 🙂

Trolling the bromance: Trump-Macron love-in sparks major meme explosion

Perhaps the only thing which might have sparked more spoofs, cartoons and meme than what happened this week at the White House during the visit of the French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife would have been a similar love-in between Trump and the North Korean president Kim. Maybe that’s yet to come? 🙂

VOLTAIRE MOVES TO KOREA, CHOREOGRAPHS KIM-MOON MEETING?

As he had done earlier this week for the Trump-Macron tête-à-tête at the White House

The North and South Korean presidents held a “historic” meeting today at the DMZ border between the two divided countries. Looks like they used the same choreographer as their master of ceremonies (François-Marie Arouet (1694–1778), known by his nom de plume (pen name) Voltaire, French Enlightenment writer and satirist).

Take a look… at the BOYFRIENDS:

Or tree-planting – MY TREE IS BIGGER THAN YOURS!

Or… WHERE ARE THE WIVES?

Perhaps you remember that two days ago I made a comment about the upcoming summit between Kim and Trump:

KISS AND MAKE UP

So stand by for Act III of Voltaire’s Trump farce. Suggested title: PEACEMAKERS. It is about the madmen who drop bombs and fire missiles and insults at each other before kiss-and-make up photo ops.

5ae33738dda4c893248b4567

Addressing Kim last September, Trump said, “Little Rocket Man, we’re going to do it (take him out), because we really have no choice.”

Earlier that day, Kim called Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard”  (from ‘Madman’ vs. ‘dotard’: Trump and Kim Jong-un trade insults, military threats | CBC News http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/north-korea-trump-threats-dotard-1.4302010)

And now, the two madmen, and who knows, perhaps even the French marionette, may be the leading candidates for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Why not? The Nobel Peace Prize has become a worthless piece of metal anyway. If a warmonger like Obama can get it, even before starting more wars around the world, why not madmen like Trump and Kim?

Still, if real peace were indeed to break out on the Korean peninsula, that would be a big step forward in the history of this planet.

AUSTRIA STARTING TO DEFEND HERSELF FROM MIGRANT INVASION

News Story

Austria deploys armored vehicle and troops on its border with Italy, takes steps to protect its cultural legacy

The Italian Foreign Ministry summoned the Austrian ambassador July 4 over Vienna’s decision to re-introduce border controls. The move comes as Austria announced it was ready to deploy troops and armored vehicles to the Italian border over the growing migrant inflow.

“We need to prepare for the migration development in Italy, and I expect very promptly that border controls will have to be activated and assistance requested,” Hans Peter Doskozil told the online edition of the Krone daily.

By assistance the official means deploying 750 soldiers and four armored vehicles to the border, and the minister described the measure as “indispensable if the influx doesn’t diminish.” The forces can be fully operational within 72 hours, according to Doskozil.

Editorial Comment

EUROPEAN BORDERS ARE A JOKE

European Union is supposed to be a borderless “country” using a single currency – the Euro. In theory. In practice, it is anything but. It’s a boiling cauldron of nationalities and cultures trying to be noticed and respected. Some are trying to protect themselves from being absorbed in the EU melting pot.

Like Austria, for example. once the seat of an empire, now just a tiny landlocked country of 8.6 million people.

During our recent month in Europe, Elizabeth and I have crossed the borders of 9 countries, some multiple times. And what we have experienced is a total inconsistency in both the border controls and the use of currency.

Britain, for example, which has voted to leave the EU, never actually changed its currency. The pound still king, or queen, if you prefer, that once also great empire.

In Spain, Austria and Slovakia we used the Euro. But once we crossed into Hungary, we had to change our money to forints. And again the next day when we crossed from Hungary into Croatia, where they use the kuna.

Yet all these countries are members of the EU. But not all of the “Eurozone.” Such fine distinctions were lost on us, American tourists. We thought the EU is the EU. Like the US. It is actually anything but.

We also had to go through border controls – passports, customs, just like in the old days, when we crossed from Hungary into Croatia, and when we crossed from Croatia into Slovenia.

Slovenia-Croatia-border-800x450

The latter was particularly annoying. The Slovenians kept a long line of cars waiting for an hour and a half at the border just to take a perfunctory look at our passports, give us an unfriendly snarl, before waiving us through.

“I think I am going to have to write an editorial about this,” I told Elizabeth as we continued our drive. “To help other Americans who might make the same assumption as we did – that Europe is united.”

AUSTRIA DEFENDING HERSELF FROM ISLAMIC INVASION

We also witnessed other cracks in the EU “multicultural” armor during our stay in Austria. This predominantly Christian country, which suffered repeated military assaults by the marauding Ottoman Empire in the 17th century is now succumbing to a Muslim invasion.

Thanks to its EU membership and the lose immigration rules, Austria’s Roman Catholic share of the population has dropped from 89% in 1961, to 74% in 2001 to 58.8% as of 2016. The Muslim share, on the other hand, went from zero before the EU, to 4% in 2001 to 7% in 2016. And since the latter birth rates are much higher, such demographic invasion is threatening to achieve what the Ottoman Turks never accomplished.

So Austria is starting to defend herself, first legislatively, and now we see also at its borders with a fellow EU country – Italy.

While we were there, the Austrian Foreign Minister said the country would end Islamic kindergartens to boost integration. ‘We don’t need them’, Sebastian Kuz was quoted as saying (see https://on.rt.com/8fny). According to the foreign minister, proficiency in German must become a gateway to Austrian society.

In late May, Austria also passed law forbidding full-face Islamic veils in public. Starting in October, a €150 fine ($166) will be levied on women wearing burkas and niqabs.

591c4cf5c46188e44b8b461e

The legislative package that was passed on Tuesday night also requires asylum seekers to take a one-year integration course, during which they must learn Austrian ethics and the German language, German newspaper Bild reported. (see https://on.rt.com/8bxf).

Norway, one of the most tolerant countries in Europe, has also proposed similar legislation this year.  So is Switzerland, though the latter is not an EU member.

Bottom line?

Not only are the European borders a joke. The entire notion of European “unity” is a joke. This idea is actually a top-down imposed “Eurotopia,” as I put it in another editorial published 22 years ago (see below – http://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/Drang.html).

“PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE” (April 1995)

And so the wars will continue. And so will NATO’s “Drang Nach Osten” (Eastward Push) against Russia, following in Hitler’s footsteps. And the “perpetual war for perpetual commerce” – New World Order’s slogan – to the tune of Beethoven’s 9th.

And the “Eurotopia” called the EU, will fester on, feeding like a leech on the wallets of European people – the New World Order sheeple. Just like the NWO leeches are doing in the U.S., Australia, Canada and elsewhere around the “developed” world. (see SELLNG FEAR TO BUY SUBSERVIENCE, MAY 12, 2015 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-VB)/

Era of Peace?

What a joke! Sounds more like “Eurotopia.” Which was a subtitle of my 22-year old article about the New World Order’s conquest and enslavement of European nations, enroute to trying the same in Russia. As you will see, many of those opinions have now come true. Unfortunately – for the once “free Europe.”

“EUROTOPIA” AGAIN ON DISPLAY IN FRANCE

MACRON THE NWO POLTRON SNUBS THE FRENCH NATIONAL ANTHEM

On this day in 1945, most of Europe celebrated the end of World War II. After a war that cost 60 million lives worldwide, most people on the Old Continent were filled with hope for a new Era of Peace.

Instead, what followed was 248 smaller wars and regional conflicts around the world that took another 30 million lives. The U.S. government started over 200 of those (see https://goo.gl/yo3hv4).

On this day in 2017, the forces of the New World Order, which have caused nearly all of those conflicts to feed their death merchants’ war machines, are also celebrating. Not the WW II victory. “Been there, done that,” they figure. They hailed the victory of one of their own in France.

The French president-elect, Emmanuel Macron (39), a leftist endorsed by Obama and the U.S. liberal establishment, as well as by Germany’s Angela Merkel and the EU president Jean-Claude Juncker, even snubbed the French national anthem in favor of the EU’s (Beethoven’s 9th Symphony Ode of Joy).

(see – “I’ll defend Europe!” Macron snubs French national anthem & walks onto stage to EU song after win – http://shr.gs/wY8jz5).

And so, the new French president now joins the ranks of those who believe in nothing. Except, of course, in the Almighty Euro, or Dollar, or Yen, or Yuan… as I said in my WASHINGTON TIMES’ Dec 29, 1996 column THE NOTHING PHILOSOPHY.

This writer can understand why the new French president snubbed his own country’s national anthem. Because it was conceived in blood during the French Revolution (1789) against the exact replicas of himself in the 18th century.

So here it is, “La Marseillaise”, with the French and English subtitles:

Shame on you, Macron – you Wall Street globalist poltron!  In solidarity with the French minority, who have still retained their national identity and pride, this evening, this writer also played “La Marseillaise” on his Steinway for the first time ever. And tears rolled down his cheeks as he did it.

“Vive la France! Vice la France libre!”

“PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE”

And so the wars will continue. And so will NATO’s “Drang Nach Osten” (Eastward Push) against Russia, following in Hitler’s footsteps. And the “perpetual war for perpetual commerce” – New World Order’s slogan – to the tune of Beethoven’s 9th.
